Masculine girls name......anyone????
Hello I am 20 weeks preg (not finding out the sex) and cannot find ANYTHING (girl) that my DH has said more than maybe to. I am at the point that I am suggesting names that I don't love just to see if I can get some sort of reaction other than "Hmm.. Maybe I mean it's okay..." our boys name is Henry Jon a combo of our fathers middle names. I love Henry although it has become way too popular for me I love that connection and DH LOVES the name and will not consider anything else. we also have a daughter Kameryn. I want something that will compliment her name but I do not want a theme at all. I want each child to be an indavidual. Also I am no longer into the unique spelling.
I have posted several time asking for opinions on my top girl names and I know that most berries are not fond of the masculine names but I just can't believe I am the only berrie who is. Please help me find something other than what I have been reading over and over.
Our girls list:
Madden Harvest - I am not dead set on the combo but he really likes Harvest and I love Madden.
Presley- no middle name yet Marie is our go to middle name (both our mothers middle names) but Presley Marie really???
Shiloh - I am not drooling over the name and dont like the Jolie Pitt association but he said oow that's not bad so I'm keeping it on my list nn Loh?
Layla Marie or Harvest - too popular for me but DH thinks its cute so... Maybe
Etta Josephine or Marie - love love love but not enought of a name for me so again... Maybe
Finley Marie - I loved this prior preg and now I just like a lot.
Jolie Marie - one of our faves it has a family connection but I know a 3 yr old Jolie and have a couple ppl in our fam who would like to use this someday and I am not into name stealing .
Mabel - he suggested I like but do picture the baby inside me as a Mabel .
Please help!!!! I am looking for new suggestions and comments on what we have. If you hate the idea of masculine names which is mainly my style then please don't try to talk me out of it. That's not what I am looking for. I have read just about every list imaginable and feel like I am ready the same classic feminine names. I don't like common and I'm getting burnt out from Charlotte, Lucy, Evelyn, Sophia.... which I do love but for someone else, not me. Thank you !!

My thoughts on your list:
I LOVE Etta, especially paired with Josephine. This is a real winner!!
I Like: Mabel, Layla...both really cute.
I think they're okay: Finley, Jolie (I prefer Joelle).
I don't like: Madden (she'll be mistaken for that crowd of Maddies!), Presley (too much Elvis, plus I know a girl by this name, and she gets teased so much about that Elvis thing that she insists on going my her middle name, Twila...and she's only 7!), and Shiloh.
Are you looking for masculine girls names? Or unisex names? Or just something not too over-done?
"Masculine" names that could suit a girl:
- Hunter...not my taste, but I know a girl of about 10 named Hunter, and she wears it very well. She is smart and pretty.
- Chase...again, not my style at all, but I knew a little girl, aged 4, named Chase and it suited her.
Girls names/unisex names that aren't girly:
Names that I don't think are prissy/girly, but that ARE unquestionable girls' names (and that aren't too over-done!):
- Claire - my own name...I like that it's simple with no nickname, and isn't frilly.
- Maren...my cousin's name, she loves it for the same reasons I love my own name. Plus, it's a little different. Her name is spelled "Merryn" though
- Erin...not over-used at all these days, and definitely not frilly, in my opinion anyway
I hope this helps, and that I haven't misunderstood what you were asking for.

Of your list I like:
Layla, Shiloh, Jolie.
Maren/Marin is a good suggestion from the PP. So it Erin.
Sage, I know a lot of people are fond of. I don't like it at all personally on girls, but perhaps you would.

Hi! I like the idea of using masculine names for girls, but the names are usually on the softer side.
Madden and Presley are too hard for me. Shiloh does make me think of the Jolie-Pitt's too. Etta Josephine is nice, better than Etta Marie. Finley Marie is by far the best name IMO. Mabel sounds like an old lady or a cow (sorry).
Okay, so it looks like Harvest, Marie, and Josephine are the suggested MN. Do you have any other names that could work are MN? Since Marie is the go to I'll use that in my suggestions.
Idk if any of those would work. But I think they sound nice.

Hi -- Well, I like masculine names for girls and so my first suggestion would be my own daughter's name:
Rory is a name -- in the UK a boys' name but in the US used equally for both sexes -- it its own right and does not need to be lengthened or changed into anything else. I do think both Shiloh and Jolie have very strong Brangelina associations. And Madden to me is football video games -- so macho and then, yes, shortened to the oh-so-ordinary Maddy. So I think you can do better.
Have you clicked on the Unisex Names tab on our home page? http://nameberry.com/search/unisex_names This will give you THOUSANDS of ideas.
Some other thoughts of names in this style you might like and that would work well with Kameryn. I'll repeat a few of the earlier excellent ideas:
